Why do girls cross their arms when they take their shirts off?
The left hand grabs the lower right side, the right hand grabs the lower left side and then they pull the shirts off over their heads. When I and most guys take ours off, we typically grab the collar and pull over our heads and take it off that way. Is crossing your arms an easier method for removing certain types of women's clothing? Or do their boobs get in the way and the cross-arm method is easier?

... 3 basic reasons why I do it...
#1 When the shirt is stretchy and you try to pull from the bottom front without crossing your arms, the shirt will catch on your chest if you've got a lot up top.
#2 Pulling your shirt from the back will allow the collar to brush up against the back of your head, thereby messing up your hair if it is quite long (i.e. past your shoulders)
#3 Turning your shirt inside out, which happens to occur when crossing your arms and pulling your top off in the front, is the best way to wash delicate clothing. Tops with beads or lace on the front should be protected from brushing up against other items in the washer, allowing it to last longer. Also, if you keep the shirt inside out in the dryer, the outside of the shirt won't be touching the hot metal drum, which is hotter than the air in the dryer. This saves the color from fading prematurely.

LOL. More than one girl has mentioned that taking your shirt off "like a guy/man" (meaning, reaching around behind your head and pulling it off) turn them on in a big way. I don't think I'd ever given it any thought before that, but since then, I've noticed that it does get a reaction most of the time.
But, I think the answer to your question has to be a combination of boobs and the fact that women's clothes are often form-fitting and not stretchy like a T-shirt, so pulling it over her head wouldn't work as well.
It's got to be the boobs. I remember seeing a video of a model named Julie Tawney where she tries to grab her bikini top and pull it up and realizes her boobs are way too big to do that. She laughs and then pulls the bottom of her bikini top up over her boobs and then pulls it up and off with a sort of "oh that's better" look on her face.
